Genesis 30

  1 H7354 And when Rachel H7200 saw [H8799]   H3205 that she bare [H8804]   H3290 Jacob H7354 no children, Rachel H7065 envied [H8762]   H269 her sister H559 ; and said [H8799]   H3290 unto Jacob H3051 , Give [H8798]   H1121 me children H369 , or else H4191 I die [H8801]  .
  2 H3290 And Jacob's H639 anger H2734 was kindled [H8799]   H7354 against Rachel H559 : and he said [H8799]   H430 , Am I in God's H4513 stead, who hath withheld [H8804]   H6529 from thee the fruit H990 of the womb?
  3 H559 And she said [H8799]   H519 , Behold my maid H1090 Bilhah H935 , go in [H8798]   H3205 unto her; and she shall bear [H8799]   H1290 upon my knees H1129 , that I may also have children [H8735]   by her.
  4 H5414 And she gave [H8799]   H1090 him Bilhah H8198 her handmaid H802 to wife H3290 : and Jacob H935 went in [H8799]   unto her.
  5 H1090 And Bilhah H2029 conceived [H8799]   H3205 , and bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H1121 a son.
  6 H7354 And Rachel H559 said [H8799]   H430 , God H1777 hath judged [H8804]   H8085 me, and hath also heard [H8804]   H6963 my voice H5414 , and hath given [H8799]   H1121 me a son H7121 : therefore called [H8804]   H8034 she his name H1835 Dan.
  7 H1090 And Bilhah H7354 Rachel's H8198 maid H2029 conceived [H8799]   H3205 again, and bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H8145 a second H1121 son.
  8 H7354 And Rachel H559 said [H8799]   H430 , With great H5319 wrestlings H6617 have I wrestled [H8738]   H269 with my sister H3201 , and I have prevailed [H8804]   H7121 : and she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H5321 Naphtali.
  9 H3812 When Leah H7200 saw [H8799]   H5975 that she had left [H8804]   H3205 bearing [H8800]   H3947 , she took [H8799]   H2153 Zilpah H8198 her maid H5414 , and gave [H8799]   H3290 her Jacob H802 to wife.
  10 H2153 And Zilpah H3812 Leah's H8198 maid H3205 bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H1121 a son.
  11 H3812 And Leah H559 said [H8799]   H1409 , A troop H935 cometh [H8804]   H7121 : and she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H1410 Gad.
  12 H2153 And Zilpah H3812 Leah's H8198 maid H3205 bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H8145 a second H1121 son.
  13 H3812 And Leah H559 said [H8799]   H837 , Happy am I H1323 , for the daughters H833 will call me blessed [H8765]   H7121 : and she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H836 Asher.
  14 H7205 And Reuben H3212 went in [H8799]   H3117 the days H2406 of wheat H7105 harvest H4672 , and found [H8799]   H1736 mandrakes H7704 in the field H935 , and brought [H8686]   H517 them unto his mother H3812 Leah H7354 . Then Rachel H559 said [H8799]   H3812 to Leah H5414 , Give me [H8798]   H1121 , I pray thee, of thy son's H1736 mandrakes.
  15 H559 And she said [H8799]   H4592 unto her, Is it a small matter H3947 that thou hast taken [H8800]   H376 my husband H3947 ? and wouldest thou take away [H8800]   H1121 my son's H1736 mandrakes H7354 also? And Rachel H559 said [H8799]   H7901 , Therefore he shall lie [H8799]   H3915 with thee to night H8478 for H1121 thy son's H1736 mandrakes.
  16 H3290 And Jacob H935 came [H8799]   H7704 out of the field H6153 in the evening H3812 , and Leah H3318 went out [H8799]   H7125 to meet [H8800]   H559 him, and said [H8799]   H935 , Thou must come in [H8799]   H7936 unto me; for surely [H8800]   H7936 I have hired [H8804]   H1121 thee with my son's H1736 mandrakes H7901 . And he lay [H8799]   H3915 with her that night.
  17 H430 And God H8085 hearkened [H8799]   H3812 unto Leah H2029 , and she conceived [H8799]   H3205 , and bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H2549 the fifth H1121 son.
  18 H3812 And Leah H559 said [H8799]   H430 , God H5414 hath given [H8804]   H7939 me my hire H834 , because H5414 I have given [H8804]   H8198 my maiden H376 to my husband H7121 : and she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H3485 Issachar.
  19 H3812 And Leah H2029 conceived [H8799]   H3205 again, and bare [H8799]   H3290 Jacob H8345 the sixth H1121 son.
  20 H3812 And Leah H559 said [H8799]   H430 , God H2064 hath endued [H8804]   H2896 me with a good H2065 dowry H6471 ; now H376 will my husband H2082 dwell [H8799]   H3205 with me, because I have born [H8804]   H8337 him six H1121 sons H7121 : and she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H2074 Zebulun.
  21 H310 And afterwards H3205 she bare [H8804]   H1323 a daughter H7121 , and called [H8799]   H8034 her name H1783 Dinah.
  22 H430 And God H2142 remembered [H8799]   H7354 Rachel H430 , and God H8085 hearkened [H8799]   H6605 to her, and opened [H8799]   H7358 her womb.
  23 H2029 And she conceived [H8799]   H3205 , and bare [H8799]   H1121 a son H559 ; and said [H8799]   H430 , God H622 hath taken away [H8804]   H2781 my reproach:
  24 H7121 And she called [H8799]   H8034 his name H3130 Joseph H559 ; and said [H8800]   H3068 , The LORD H3254 shall add [H8686]   H312 to me another H1121 son.
  25 H7354 And it came to pass, when Rachel H3205 had born [H8804]   H3130 Joseph H3290 , that Jacob H559 said [H8799]   H3837 unto Laban H7971 , Send me away [H8761]   H3212 , that I may go [H8799]   H4725 unto mine own place H776 , and to my country.
  26 H5414 Give [H8798]   H802 me my wives H3206 and my children H2004 , for H5647 whom I have served [H8804]   H3212 thee, and let me go [H8799]   H3045 : for thou knowest [H8804]   H5656 my service H5647 which I have done [H8804]   thee.
  27 H3837 And Laban H559 said [H8799]   H4672 unto him, I pray thee, if I have found [H8804]   H2580 favour H5869 in thine eyes H5172 , tarry: for I have learned by experience [H8765]   H3068 that the LORD H1288 hath blessed [H8762]   H1558 me for thy sake.
  28 H559 And he said [H8799]   H5344 , Appoint [H8798]   H7939 me thy wages H5414 , and I will give [H8799]   it .
  29 H559 And he said [H8799]   H3045 unto him, Thou knowest [H8804]   H834 how H5647 I have served [H8804]   H834 thee, and how H4735 thy cattle was with me.
  30 H4592 For it was little H6440 which thou hadst before I H6555 came, and it is now increased [H8799]   H7230 unto a multitude H3068 ; and the LORD H1288 hath blessed [H8762]   H7272 thee since my coming H4970 : and now when H6213 shall I provide [H8799]   H1004 for mine own house also?
  31 H559 And he said [H8799]   H5414 , What shall I give thee [H8799]   H3290 ? And Jacob H559 said [H8799]   H5414 , Thou shalt not give [H8799]   H3972 me any thing H6213 : if thou wilt do [H8799]   H1697 this thing H7725 for me, I will again [H8799]   H7462 feed [H8799]   H8104 and keep [H8799]   H6629 thy flock:
  32 H5674 I will pass [H8799]   H6629 through all thy flock H3117 to day H5493 , removing [H8687]   H5348 from thence all the speckled H2921 and spotted [H8803]   H7716 cattle H2345 , and all the brown H7716 cattle H3775 among the sheep H2921 , and the spotted [H8803]   H5348 and speckled H5795 among the goats H7939 : and of such shall be my hire.
  33 H6666 So shall my righteousness H6030 answer [H8804]   H3117 for me in time H4279 to come H935 , when it shall come [H8799]   H7939 for my hire H6440 before thy face H3605 : every one H5348 that is not speckled H2921 and spotted [H8803]   H5795 among the goats H2345 , and brown H3775 among the sheep H1589 , that shall be counted stolen [H8803]   with me.
  34 H3837 And Laban H559 said [H8799]   H3863 , Behold, I would it might be H1697 according to thy word.
  35 H5493 And he removed [H8686]   H3117 that day H8495 the he goats H6124 that were ringstraked H2921 and spotted [H8803]   H5795 , and all the she goats H5348 that were speckled H2921 and spotted [H8803]   H3836 , and every one that had some white H2345 in it, and all the brown H3775 among the sheep H5414 , and gave [H8799]   H3027 them into the hand H1121 of his sons.
  36 H7760 And he set [H8799]   H7969 three H3117 days H1870 ' journey H3290 betwixt himself and Jacob H3290 : and Jacob H7462 fed [H8802]   H3498 the rest [H8737]   H3837 of Laban's H6629 flocks.
  37 H3290 And Jacob H3947 took [H8799]   H4731 him rods H3892 of green H3839 poplar H3869 , and of the hazel H6196 and chesnut tree H6478 ; and pilled [H8762]   H3836 white H6479 strakes H3836 in them, and made the white H4286 appear H4731 which was in the rods.
  38 H3322 And he set [H8686]   H4731 the rods H6478 which he had pilled [H8765]   H5227 before H6629 the flocks H7298 in the gutters H4325 in the watering H8268 troughs H6629 when the flocks H935 came [H8799]   H8354 to drink [H8800]   H3179 , that they should conceive [H8799]   H935 when they came [H8800]   H8354 to drink [H8800]  .
  39 H6629 And the flocks H3179 conceived [H8799]   H4731 before the rods H3205 , and brought forth [H8799]   H6629 cattle H6124 ringstraked H5348 , speckled H2921 , and spotted [H8803]  .
  40 H3290 And Jacob H6504 did separate [H8689]   H3775 the lambs H5414 , and set [H8799]   H6440 the faces H6629 of the flocks H413 toward H6124 the ringstraked H2345 , and all the brown H6629 in the flock H3837 of Laban H7896 ; and he put [H8799]   H5739 his own flocks H7896 by themselves, and put [H8804]   H3837 them not unto Laban's H6629 cattle.
  41 H7194 And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger [H8794]   H6629 cattle H3179 did conceive [H8763]   H3290 , that Jacob H7760 laid [H8804]   H4731 the rods H5869 before the eyes H6629 of the cattle H7298 in the gutters H3179 , that they might conceive [H8763]   H4731 among the rods.
  42 H6629 But when the cattle H5848 were feeble [H8687]   H7760 , he put them not in [H8799]   H5848 : so the feebler [H8803]   H3837 were Laban's H7194 , and the stronger [H8803]   H3290 Jacob's.
  43 H376 And the man H6555 increased [H8799]   H3966 exceedingly H3966   H7227 , and had much H6629 cattle H8198 , and maidservants H5650 , and menservants H1581 , and camels H2543 , and asses.
